The X Factor 2013: Melanie McCabe Breaks Down, Reduces Nicole Scherzinger To Tears (PHOTOS)
Fourth-time hopeful Melanie McCabe will be seen breaking down in tears on The X Factor this weekend following her Bootcamp performance of Katy Perry’s ‘The One That Got Away’.
According to TellyMix, the singer – who previously made it as far as Judges’ Houses when mentored by Kelly Rowland in 2011 – also leaves Nicole Scherzinger blubbing following her rendition.
“In your past performances I didn’t know if I had you or if I felt it,” the former Pussycat Doll tells her. “But you had me on this one.”

Gary Barlow adds: “Wow, you had me from the first note, and under all the pressure you have, being backstage and watching these seats full up.”
The new Bootcamp format will see acts performing one by one for their mentor, and being given a straight yes or no answer on the spot. Six chairs will be by the side of the stage, and if a judge wants to take another act through to the Judges’ Houses stage once all of the chairs are occupied, he or she must pick and act to switch out.

When Melanie performs, all six of the seats are full – so Nicole must decide whether or not to send her home, or put her through at the expense of someone else.
Melanie has also said that she won’t return if she is unsuccessful this year, telling The Sun: “It could be the last song I sing on TV. It’s my fourth time in X Factor. If I don’t get through I won’t do it, or another talent show again.
“I wasn’t even sure about doing it this year, Most famous singers haven’t done them so I suppose the next step would be to do it the way other singers do.”
